    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at CoreSite (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    CoreSite moves quickly with their interview process if they are interested in you; this is clear from speaking with other employees. The interview process was very straightforward and painless. They make sure you speak with your entire team, your manager, and any relevant VPs and SVPs throughout the interview process. Everyone is friendly and not trying to intimate or trick you. The interviews feel more like a conversation rather than a barrage of questions.

    Billing Assurance Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CoreSite (Denver, CO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was great! They kept the process really candidate friendly, as I was interviewed by multiple people all in one day. Instead of asking me to come back again, they made sure I met with everyone they wanted me to meet with in about a 4 hour window.

    The communication regarding time, people you will meet with, how to get to the office, parking, etc. was great! HR let me know the title of each person I was meeting with. This was great for interview preparation, as I was able to think of various questions I would ask each individual person given their title within the organization. Overall, It was definitely the best interview process I had been through in my career.

    The next day I was called by the hiring manager and was offered the job!
